If you are someone who is continuously striving to lessen waste, you may want to support the brands who are seriously cleaning up this planet. Wolven Threads is taking discarded plastic bottles and making some of the coolest swimwear I've ever seen. For this LA-based brand, creating less waste and promoting a more conscious lifestyle {inside & out} is the heart of their business. Their patterns are inspired by nature's amazing use of geometry, with colors pulled from Indian art & yoga roots. In-house designers, Kiran Jade & Will Ryan, take these elements to produce some of the most mesmerizing patterns. Don't you remember getting lost in a kaleidoscope as a child? 

So.. about those plastic bottles..

With over 6.4 million tonnes of plastic entering our oceans every year, we need to find a solution to this problem. In a perfect world, it would be to not use plastic AT ALL anymore. However, this isn't completely realistic at this time, AND we still have most of the plastic made just floating around. Why not do something with it so bottles don't outnumber the fish in the sea?! Wolven Threads has taken it upon themselves to find a solution - in a really fun, fashionable way, am I right?!. Their entire swimwear collection {including their Activewear line} is made from OEKO-TEX certified Recycled P.E.T fabric (RPET). This certification shows the material does not contain any harmful and toxic chemicals. Plus, RPET is great for physical activity with its quick-drying, moisture-wicking and antibacterial properties.

Besides the stunning prints and great material, Wolven Threads gives back. For every purchase made, 5% is donated to bring yoga to at-risk youth. The practice of yoga can help build confidence, lessen anxiety and become in tune with your own mind & body. 

I'm wearing the vibrant Red Flower One Piece. The print and cut make this piece extremely flattering - I have to say, I am OBSESSED with it.  If you are in love with this print as much as I am, you can find it on leggings & yoga tops, too! &&& What is so cool about each one of their designs, you can wear them for more than one purpose. Their swimsuits look great with high waist jeans, shorts and skirts. Woo hoo for versatility!
